ELKS' SOCIAL SESSION.
Delightful Entertainment Furnished
at tho Lodge Room.
The Elks had a social session last

and the members of his company and
a delegation from the Excelsior Ath

Elks, with all sorts of horns on. H. J.
Schubert. William Holbert and W. J.

Chairman Taylor Imposed fines with
delicious regularity and the times when
members were not delving pocketward

male contingent of the dramatic con
cern and by the Excelsior Athletic
During the performance two very
clever box in sr bouts were given by
members of the club. William Kane
met Patrick Langan for three short
periods of punching, and afterward
Patrick Durkln and Anthony Gordon,
the famous, gave a lively exhibition
for points. The last bout was a spell
binder. George Falrchlld, age not
known, and John lienore, same thing,
were spongers. They used towels. Al
Ruse acted ns referee and clinch maker.
The bout was a draw, though Gordon
had a little the best of It. A. Hess, of
New York, sang "Oh, Promise Me,"
and the same selection was played on
the cornet by Mr. Rowley, formerly of
Carbondale, but now with the Payton
orchestra. Ralph Williams, of the
company, gave n couple of selections,
and Sidney S. Tooler, the rich bari

No Necessity of Stimulating
Enthusiasm at Last
DENSE CROWD IN THEATER
Hundreds of Persons Turned Away
Because It Was Impossible to Get
Even Standing RoomDemon
stration Snows the Strong Senti
ment of tbe People of Scranton
for McKinley, Sound Money and
Protection Many Ladies Present
to Hoar tne Logical and Scholarly
Addresses of Hon. Cbarles Emory
Smith and Hon. D. D. Woodmansee.
The Central Republican club Is to be
congratulated all around for the grand
success of lust night's big demonstra
tion. The most pessimistic fault-finder
could discover but one flaw In the-nr-rangements.
That was that It did not
provide for one-half of the people who
came to attend or for one-tenth of the
people who wanted to attend and who
would have been there had there been
any prospect of getting In.
It was the first big rally of the cam
paign and this McKinley city looked to
It us the one great occasion on which
it would have an opportunity of giving
concerted vent to Its pent-up enthusi
asm and telling the world just where
Scranton stood in the fight. It is a
matter of regret, mure to the club than
anybody else that this city Is not pro
vided with a big hall, but as everything
else was so hugely successful this regret
can be pnssed over with an application
of the old "spilt milk" adage.
But If the uudienco was not com
mensurate with the occasion in the
matter of quantity it went far townrds
making up this deficit by Its quality.
The city's most representative men nnd
many ladies who are recognized lenders
in the social, religious or charitable
movements, made up a goodly part of
thu audience. Then there were the
political clubs, to the number of about
fifteen, embracing within their ranks
the prominent political leaders from
every section of the city. There were
there also many of the best Democrats
of the city who were not averse to
hearing exploited the errors of their
ways, or rather the errors of the party
to which they belonged and In which
they felt an uneasiness, born of a belief
that they were In error and willing to
be convinced of their error. These with
the stalwart rank and file of the party
filled the Frothlugham so that It was
impossible for another onu to crowd In
and made It necessary at 8 o'clock to
begin turning people away.
The first evidence of the night's event
was when the Junior Republican club
marched from their quarters on Wash
ington avenue, and headed by Bauer's
band proceeded to escort the speakers
to the hall. The club was one hundred
strong and wore for the llrst time Its
pretty and appropriate uniform of gilt
capes and caps. They were captained
by George A. Millet t. First they pro
ceeded to William Connell's residence
and after securing Mr. Connell marched
to the home of Major Everett Warren
where lie and the two speakers. Hon.
Charles Emory Smith and D. D. Wood
mansee were met. The four mentioned
were then escorted down Olive, to Jef
ferson, to Vine, to Washington, to
Spruce, to Wyoming, and thence to tho

FIRE IN A MINE.
Workmen in the Babylon Coal Com
pany's Shaft Had a Narrow Escape.
Fireman McCarthy's Heroism.
A fire was discovered In the Babylon
Coal company shaft at Duryea at 8
o'clock last nlzht and In less than ten
minutes the shaft filled with flames.
Had It not been for the heroio ef
forts of Mine Foreman McCarthy and a
few of the company employes It would
have proved very disastrous. The fire
was found to be In the oil shanty about
200 feet from the foot. In the shaft
were a number of miners who were
working In the nlfht shift, some of
whom were fully a mile from the foot
of the shaft. McCarthy managed to
work his way up the mnnway on his
hands nnd knees until he reached a
door that he opened, leaving the main
current of air and the smoke to return
to the fan shaft before reaching the
Olng to his brave work and thought
fulness all the men at work got out
In safety. Had the air door not been
opened the smoke would have driven
upon them and many of them would
have suffocated or lost their way In
trying to escape.
John Gallagher, one of the miners
holding the hose and fighting the flames
with water, was struck by falling rock,
barely escaping with his life. He sus
tained a fracture of the thigh bone and
was otherwise seriously Injured. The
fire was still burning at an early hour
this morning but the miners fighting It
have it under control and It is believed
they will subdue It.
AMES WAS NOT AROUND.
Did .Not Put in ait Aiicnranco to
Claim His Child.
There was a hearing before Judge
Edwards yesterday afternoon In cham
bers In the habeas corpus proceedings
brought by Holloway Arms, of Wil
liam street, North End, to regain pos
session of his 3-year-old daughter,
Olive, who Is now In care of her grand
father, Oscar JIayo, of Green Grove.
Mrs. Ames left her husband recently
and eloped with a man named Charles
Decker, of Edwnrdsdale.
On Monday John M. Harris, rep
resenting; Ames, filed a petition In
court for a writ of habeas corpus. It
was alleged In the petition that Mrs.
Ames, when she deserted her husband,
took along the child and left It In
charge of her father, nnd that her fnth
er refused to deliver it over to Its fath
er when he made demand for It.
The hearing was set down for yes
terday afternoon before Judge Ed
wards, but Ames wus not on hand. The
hearing was proceeded with without
him. Judge Edwards remanded the
child to the care of Its grandfather,
pending a final disposition of the case.
